Sea Turtle

In Haitian Oil Drum art, the designs are chalked out on flattened steel oil drums and then cut out with a mallet and chisel. Characteristics of these metal sculptures include areas that are concave or convex, intricate patterns are created by hammering in "bumps" of different heights.

This sea turtle goes anywhere and can displayed in a variety of ways.  Nicely detailed.  

With the encouragement of his older brother, Caleb, 10-year old Kendy Bellony took hammer and chisel in hand and began the practice of “coupe de fer” or cutting iron. At the time, he was attending school, along with his two younger sisters. Their father had died and the extra income that Kendy could provide was vital to the family.
